Smart and Safe Outdoor Plant Watering System

Monitors soil moisture and weather forecasts to give plants just the water they need. Safe garden hose hookup for season long watering. OK, so let me just say that I approached this project with a little trepidation - water, code and electricity don’t mix well in my mind. I imagined creating a project that, if it failed, could waste hundreds of gallons of water and I might not be on-hand to stop it. That said, I have spent some time tending to the plants on my back deck and I did not want them to wilt and die when I was away. I know there are many plant watering projects on and the web. However, the ones I looked at did not meet my needs or address my concerns, so, I decided to make my own. I also saw this as a chance to improve my skills on the Particle Platform.”
